This 1 has been in the cellar for a couple years.

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber brown with a quarter inch khaki foamy head that dissipates into a thin film.

Melanoidin, deeply caramelized malt, forms the initial aroma. Very buttery, nutty, toffee notes blend with a sherry-like dark fruit note that is reminiscent of black cherries.

Flavor reveals dark fruit notes of plum and cherry, along with a hint of sherry. Prunes and raisins combine with deeply toasted caramel malt and roasted nuts. There's a hint of cardboard due to oxidation.

Body is a touch full, with low carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.

This has been interesting. Aged quite well. Probably close to being too old.
